Affordability is a big thing when it comes to security. With so much to pay for in life in general, it can be hard to find the extra pennies needed to invest in a quality, affordable and effect home security product. As we head into 2017, let’s take a look at how you can make the years to come safer on a budget.
If you are struggling to find the capital needed to buy a quality, affordable home security solution then this is just what you should be looking for in the future.
The Y-Cam Evo is one of the most useful, all-round home security products and, at £129.99, you are getting a very affordable security option at the same time. Reliable and effective thanks to the quality of the camera itself, you can get a clear picture and an obvious image from what is going on outside.
Thanks to the excellent quality of the hardware, and the seven-day cloud recording system that is included, you can keep a long backlog of detail about the goings on around your building. Add in the fact that it’s so easy to set up, and this is a very good option to go for.
It’s a budget option and provides the kind of features that even some of the more expensive, premium systems cannot. The recording alongside the easy set up means that using the Y-Cam Evo is a very simple thing to do. You should use the Y-cam in addition to any window alarms you have in the home.
If you are in need of a quality camera that you can trust gets the job done as and when you need it, go for the Y-Cam Evo. It’s a sound option, one that is well-priced and gives you all the security solutions you need for any typical household.
Y-Cam Home Monitor
The HomeMonitor is another great Y-Cam option, one that provides an easy solution for anyone who wants to make the most of their homes security needs. It’s got excellent range and visibility, making it good for smaller homes as well as for those with extensive land to cover. While the image quality could be a little better, at £199 it’s a reliable and steady piece of home security equipment.
The Nest Cam that it makes use of has a bit better image quality, but it’s still not spectacular. Performance can be inconsistent on the Nest Cam, too, but again, for the price, it’s not exactly a deal-breaker.
With no need for a subscription with the Nest services, though, you can just use the basic option and get a quality camera system that can be relied upon. Durable and relatively safe in harsh weather, this is a camera that can more than handle the requirements that you may have.
It could be a little clearer in the image, but for the price you cannot really complain. Sturdy, strong and effective for any typical home security needs if you need something for 2017 that won’t break the bank, this is it.

It comes with a nice LED light, too, that adds a nice outdoor lighting feature to the camera meaning you get extra visibility on top of the security. It’s also very easy to install and it comes with no subscription or security needs – plug it in, set it up, and enjoy.

Although this is more internal security, it’s a great tool for making sure you don’t come across a leak in your home that soon becomes a flood. You can prevent small water leaks from getting worse by having this reliable and easy to use tracker tool to keep an eye on your home.
It runs alerts around the home and if anything is found, it alerts you immediately. It looks for things like humidity and temperature levels as much as anything else, spotting the clear signs of mold growth and other less than palatable features of leaks.

Want the kind of lock that is nearly impossible to get off without the right tools and combination? Then go for this excellent home security option. With a finger-resistant touch screen that allows for key-less locking and unlocking, this is easy to use for the user and hell to break through for an intruder.
This uses Z-wave wireless technology, too, which allows you to control access remotely from your smartphone or tablet.

Dependable deadbolt locks can be hard to find, so this makes an easy choice for those who want reliable, effective security.
